SUNY HAPPENINGS

MIDDLEBURGH LIBRARY: 3/3 - 10:00 to 12:00, Chain saw Safety - An Introduction. Chain saws are among the most useful and dangerous outdoor power tools owned and operated by landowners. Severe injuries include deep, jagged lacerations embedding foreign substances resulting from direct contact with the chain saw; strains and sprains from improper handling; and contusions concussions and/or fractures caused by being struck by objects while cutting. Improper long term use may result in loss of hearing and diminished nerve sensitivity. The use, storage, and transportation of potentially hazardous materials necessary for chains operation increases the risk of injury. While all danger cannot be eliminated, training and instruction have proven to be an effective way to mitigate the risk of harm to a chain saw. Mike Burns from Professional Forestry Services will present an instructional program for the occasional chain saw user on safe operation and risk mitigation. This session is intended to be an introduction to chain saw use and is not adequate preparation for felling standing trees. Participants will not be using a chain saw as part of the workshop. This workshop is free and is underwritten by New York Center for Agricultural Medicine and Health. Registration is required.
